So where does the “little blues-rock duo that could” go from here? With a headlining spot at Lollapalooza, Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney have headlined practically every major festival stateside. At this point, the next step is just one of those free Central Park gigs where 8 million New Yorkers, all of which are at least familiar with the band, turn the city into one giant garage-rock party.
